    Embed a google map on a static page?

    I am currently trying to embed a google map of our school on a "find us" page.

    Whenever I edit the page as html and save it, the html disappears.

    I could well be putting the wrong tags in so could anyone suggest how I could add the map or an alternative so visitors can find us?

    Thanks

    Google Maps API - Google Code

    might that be the solution?

    When you say Google map do you mean an image of or are you actually wanting people to be able to use the interactive map?

    If you want it to be interactive then you could use an iframe, although that is not the best method.

    If you post your code then that will help too.

    Yes the Google API key has to be associated with a domain

    If this is going to be on the school website then you could just put the school URL? It doesn't matter that it's not live yet, I don't think.

    I just put the url

    http://maps.google.com/maps?q=40%20h...0prenton,%20uk

    into a wrapper and that works a treat!

    When you say you are adding code via the HTML editor, is this via the JCE editor? IF so then there are issues with JCE stripping code.

    The work around would be via the backend admin goto Site > Global Configuration and set Default WYSIWYG Editor to No WYSIWYG Editor

    Now edit your code and see what happens.
